Devos of the Week: Psalm 12

“Help Lord, for no one is faithful anymore…” Many have experienced it, others have heard about it on the news or in social media; no one is faithful or so it seems.  Broken marriages, difficult neighbors, police, and politicians; seems like it impacts almost everyone.  Yet the Psalmist reminds us, when humans are faithless, God “arises and protects” the needy, the poor, and the powerless. Do I need his care?  Am I faithful in all my relationships?   Lead us O Christ our Savior to be faithful even as you are faithful. Amen.

Leadership Devo of the Week: Psalm 82

Give justice to the weak and orphan; maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute.  Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” Christians and Christian leaders need to be ever reminded of what touches the heart of God. It is easy to get caught up in services, programs, fund-raising, and meetings of all types and forget what really matters to God.  How am I, my family and my church caring for the weak and needy?  Lift our eyes beyond our self-centered comfort prayers that we might serve “the least of these” Lord Jesus.
